This isn't an all at once build, this is just the current version of a build I put together in 2014 and have gradually made various changes and additions to over the last two years.
I use my PC for...well for everything. Gaming, recording/streaming gameplay, writing professionally, budgeting, multimedia/home theater, etc. As such, it has a bunch of stuff that doesn't generally cater to certain crowds. It's too big and bulky to be a normal HTPC, it's way too powerful for what anyone needs for writing, and it has far more storage than most gamers would bother putting into a gaming machine.
But it does what I need. I can listen to every song and watch almost every movie I own from my drives without having to grab any discs from the shelves, over 3,000 games are installed so I don't have to wait to download something if a friend wants to play something I haven't touched in months (You can find me on Steam, Uplay, Origin, YouTube, etc. under the same handle as here), I can play just about any game out there without needing to fuss over settings, and when I need to get some writing done I have a nice sized, sharp screen with plenty of workspace for my project and whatever notes I need on screen.
If I'm not training, or with my family, you can find me cosied up to The Second Wife.
